Make Your School No Place for Hate®:
Is any child in your school being picked on or left out? Have you heard any offensive jokes, name-calling or biased remarks in the hallways? Is your student body becoming more diverse? If so, the ADL Southeast Region can help you make your school a place of respect, unity and character through No Place for Hate®, an exciting nation-wide campaign.
Standing up to bullies and against bigotry is never easy – particularly for young people. This is why ADL's No Place for Hate® initiative empowers the whole school community – teachers and students, administrators and parents – to tackle prejudice, bullying and intergroup conflict.
Launched in the Southeast Region in 2007, the popular initiative has been embraced by hundreds of schools.
Because ADL is committed to creating communities of respect, No Place For Hate® is FREE TO SCHOOLS!
How to Become a No Place for Hate® School:
1. Sign and submit to ADL the Application and Resource Order Form
No Place for Hate Application and Resource Order Form 2013-2014 (DOC)
2. Create a No Place for Hate® Team of students and educators to oversee the initiative’s implementation.
Consider inviting parents, guardians and community members to join as well. If needed, your team should start by doing a needs assessment. More information is in the Classroom Resource Guide (link below). You can also download a sample introductory Classroom Activity
Anti-Bullying Checklist (PDF)
Classroom Activity (PDF)
3. Have a majority of students, teachers and staff sign the Resolution of Respect.
(For your school's purposes only; there is no need to return individually-signed Resolutions to ADL. You can use the suggested Resolutions below or develop your own as long as it is still called the No Place For Hate® Pledge or Resolution and you provide a copy for approval)
No Place for Hate Promise -- for Elementary School (English and Spanish) (PDF)
No Place for Hate Resolution of Respect -- For Middle and High School (English and Spanish) (PDF)
No Place For Hate® Resolution Poster (Middle and High School) (PDF)
4. Complete at least three school-wide anti-bullying or diversity education activities throughout the school year.
When selecting activities, students and faculty can utilize the No Place for Hate® Resource Guide (PDF - It may take several minutes for this document to open. Please be patient.) which has over 50 activity ideas and also includes information about responding to bullying and name-calling, responding to cyberbullying, definitions of terms related to diversity and bullying, and guidelines for holiday observances that respect the diversity of cultural and religious traditions in schools.
You can also download ADL’s Calendar of Observances
2013 Calendar of Observances (PDF)
2014 Calendar of Observances (PDF)
Even more information and lesson plans are compiled online at www.adl.org/combatbullying.
Attached is an example from ADL’s Houston, TX region of one school’s submissions. This might help you as you plan your school’s No Place for Hate campaign.

When You Have Been Approved:
1. You will be contacted by the ADL.
2. Your school will receive a No Place for Hate® banner (an ADL representative can present your banner in person on request—see Certification Form) You are officially designated and publically recognized as a No Place For Hate® School.
Don’t forget—this is a yearly designation, so No Place For Hate® is an ONGOING campaign!
You may download and print the Resolution of Respect, Intent Form, and other documents you need from the ADL Southeast Region's No Place for Hate® page and send them in. For more information, please contact us.

Read4Respect connects local businesses and volunteers to elementary schools by engaging them in reading books that promote respect. Read4Respect helps students learn an essential "4th R" -Reading, wRiting , aRithmetic and Respect.
Read4Respect is designed to get adults and kids talking to each other about how we can put an end to name-calling and bullying—and to start that conversation at an early age. Students want to discuss these issues and they want adults to demonstrate concern and support.
Since children's literature can be an effective and non-threatening way to initiate dialogue on this topic, Read4Respect volunteers read books to elementary age students that stimulate discussions about how to prevent bullying and name-calling and to respect differences and value diversity.
After each story, children will have the opportunity to display and expand their understanding of the lesson from the story through age appropriate activities. Lessons focus on bullying prevention; understanding and appreciating differences; empathy; and respect.
The Read4Respect model accommodates both individual and group volunteers:
ADL matches community volunteers with participating elementary schools.
We need your support to help create a safe and caring environment for all children, not just in our schools but in our families and communities as well. Working together we CAN create a community of respect!
ADL provides volunteers easy to follow discussion guidelines for selected books.
ADL provides follow-up and extension activities for classroom teachers and counselors.
Community volunteers are asked to purchase a copy of the book (or books) that they will read and discuss then to donate that book to the school's library.
ADL staff is available to do volunteer trainings and orientations.
Congratulations to All Our 2011-2012 No Place For Hate Schools!
Congratulations to all of you on your ongoing commitment to creating a school where everyone is treated with respect. We especially want to all the members of No Place For Hate® leadership teams for their stewardship of this initiative.
We are now counting on each of you to live up to the message on these giant banners—to be allies, not bystanders, and to stand up against all forms of bullying and bias.
By accepting the No Place for Hate designation, and hanging the banner, you are making a commitment to live up to the No Place for Hate Promise that you signed. You are making a promise that every day, both as individuals and as a community, you will treat each other with respect. That’s all day, every day, all year long. That is not an easy commitment, but we are confident you will be wonderful representatives of No Place for Hate!
We celebrate your efforts to create a community of respect, where there truly is “No Place for Hate,” and hope that you will earn this designation for years to come!
Working together, we can build a community of respect.
